If there are no people looking for this type of pornography, there's no point in producing it either. By actively looking for such images you are feeding an industry that abuses children.

Agreed, with the caveat that if those images do not require the abuse or exploitation of actual children to produce, no crime should be said to have taken place.

If beating off to anime helps some guy resist the urge to fuck an actual kid, I call that a win.
